KIRKWOOD, MO (KTVI) - On Friday, July 6 from 5:30 to 9:00 pm, pint-sized athletes can go for the gold at The Kids' Games, an
Olympic-inspired event at The Magic House. Kids can compete in five different Olympic Events including:
the Javelin Throw
Since getting active and having fun makes everybody a winner, competitors completing all five events will have the opportunity to decorate their very own gold medal and celebrate their victory with a healthy and delicious red, white and blue yogurt parfait they make themselves.
This event is part of Fitness First Friday, a monthly fitness-focused event for the entire family sponsored by Centene Corporation. Each month features a different theme. For July's Olympic-themed Fitness First Friday, The Magic House is partnering with GO! St. Louis, a non-profit organization who, like The Magic House, encourages individuals and families in the St. Louis region to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle year round.
Additionally, troops from Scott Air Force Base will be on hand helping kids complete the different Olympic-inspired events.
Children who bring a completed Fitness Challenge, available on The Magic House's website, will receive free admission to The Magic House for Fitness First Friday.
To register or complete the fitness challenge, please visit The Magic House online at www.magichouse.org .
The first 100 visitors to attend Fitness First Friday will receive a backpack filled with healthy goodies and take-home activities. There will also be some great giveaways for kids and adults.
Fitness First Fridays are held on the first Friday evening of every month from 5:30 to 9:00 pm at The Magic House and are free with museum admission.
